Bangkok: A day in Wat Arun


Time goes fast! We arrived in Bangkok a week ago and soon we’re leaving, this time to Kuala Lumpur.

Bangkok is a huge and modern city! There’s plenty to see. In our second time in Thai capital we don’t feel the pressure to see the touristic spots, so we’ve been mostly in our favorite districts, Silom and Sathorn.


Thanks to the location of our hotel in Sathorn, one of these days we visited Wat Arun, one of our favorite buddhist temples.

Two years ago, when we came for the first time in Bangkok, we didn’t have the chance to visit Wat Arun because it was under renovation, but this time we made it, getting a local and typical boat in Sathon.


This ride (15 baht – 0,50 eur) took us directly to the entrance of Wat Arun in less than 20 minutes.

Wat Arun is a perfect escapade of busy Bangkok. The complex includes temples and monuments, gardens and even a school where the local young monks learn.


The monument is quite impressive and we felt very comfortable: monks were very friendly and welcoming. We could even take some photos together (so touristic right? ahah).

In conclusion, Wat Arun is the perfect place to spend some hours, relaxing among the locals and enjoying the quietness of a sacred place.
